What is the issue? I can't tell from the image.

It is the futallaby script

Well, new as in new for the new commuter service. Really they're 30 year old Messerschmitt MBB cars on loan from the MBTA.

Regardless, I think they look very modern and awesome. Good pop of color combined with a novel logo. Not too traditional but not too tacky. I like it.

Damn, I wonder why and if it really is abandoned


It's not abandoned, it's just derelict. As I recall, some guy owns it and all of the cars are for sale but he wants an exorbitant amount per car despite their terrible condition. Might be wrong, I don't really remember.



Just give it time, eventually he will die and the cars will get sold to whoever wants them and those that don't will get scrapped

Where has the urban rail thread gone?

Ah well.
So heah, Länsimetro opened today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zGvhYRgBBE

They had the student orchestra to delight the early morning visitors, of whom there wandered a reasonable number, everyone thinking they'd be almost alone. Later the day very small coffee, cake slice, bag and mug ceremony. As it's saturday, some probably use the new instrument for bar crawl right away.

So yeah, urban rail - the armchair foamer's rail. Always things happening.

>the way we tend to view public transit in the United States

Don't take this as an insult but, see the pic. I see no deviation from the normal here.

FOR STARTERS… Does that tramway, yes tramway, not some stinking meme streetcar, replace a bus line of, lets say, let's be generous, at least 15 minutes interval? If not, that's a gian red flag.

Righty'o, mate. Didn't think of that. You know, when someone says Russian tram factory test track, I think something more like the "Ust-Katav to Paranimo tramway".

This place: http://englishrussia.com/2014/02/15/metro-rail-tram-system-for-a-tiny-village-in-siberia/

Sorry. But, interestingly enough, the google maps car has been to the place and all I can say… that's an express trip to the Russia - not the country - Russia, the state of mind.

> as a kind of feeder system to metro and local rail stations and doesn't reach all the way to the city center.

Well mostly yes, although I wouldn't compare it to bus as the tram is usually more "mainline" service having an advantage of more capacity and speed due to many tracks being isolated from traffic, you could say tram in Moscow is more than a simple streetcar but still less than a full-fledged LRT. There is one line in the city center though and SPB has plenty of them.

> That there was a some sort of wye reversing going on at the bigger network, Lesnaya street?

I said, it was a reversing headshunt. Why else would you think Moscow required the Tatra-based double-sided MTTA-2 trams working in back-to-back pairs for? Pic related, you can clearly see the doors on the "wrong" side, though here it is already separated and passed to Krasnopresnenskoe depot.

> But, if the networks were re-connected, it would happen through Leningrad ave?

Dude, it makes me really uncomfortable that you're putting it like it never gonna happen. Like you know something I don't. There was an official announcement on the very high level that until 2020 both Moscow tram networks will be re-connected. It will be fully historically new route from Ostankino loop of the Central network through Timiryazevskaya and to the Dmitrovskaya loop (on the pic related) of the Krasnopresnenskaya (smaller) network, most likely with this routing, SEE THE LINK https://goo.gl/WW7nx9 What is more interesting it is planned as a compensation for the Moscow Monorail which should be disassembled by that time, which makes sense as its integration to the transport network is close to zero and the dedicated tram line would be like 500x more convenient mean of getting around the place.


File: 1521706391548.jpg (472.75 KB, 1260x840, 1092214.jpg)

And oh God almighty I pray this re-connection will happen as announced! Because the Transport Department is infamous for not always keeping its promises… well technically it does but some of them are easily put on hold for years upon years. Because recently there are some rumors this re-connection not gonna happen as the line will go only until Timiryazevskaya and some claiming that this not gonna happen at all with the monorail abomination (it sure looks nice and fun to ride but it is a nightmare from the transit point of view) retained to remain ridiculously unprofitable.

See, the problem with Moscow tram is that under current mayor it is in a strange state of what you could call a "positive stagnation". They sure care well about what is left from the tram system after Luzhkov's rampage, upgrading rolling stock in massive amounts and doing adequate repairs of existing tracks but with improbably rare exceptions they won't even move a finger to expand the network. Sure, they restored line to Sokol almost right after it was closed in Luzhkov's last months as a mayor and did that little expansion from Lesnaya to Belorusskiy rail terminal but that's it, 1.6 km for 8 years with only 300 m being new track (not restored right after recent deconstruction). So if they would keep their word and pull this trick with Ostankino-Dmitrovskaya line it will be an unprecedented success totally unseen since the collapse of USSR. What I like about this line (which should be connected to Ostankino) is that it is very cozy and authentic so it is kinda sad that for now it is just a long appendix with no branches, I think it will be much more interesting when it will end up in the middle of the unified network.

Well this was needlessly harsh.

I studied a bit about the Sun Metro and it appears to be one of the saner transit authorities. Still, this doesn't change the fact that as things stand now, it's yet another figure of eight heritage streetcar.

There may be some translation issues, what is broadly a "tram" in queens English is a "light rail" US, there's really no good term for these "streetcars", because such systems aren't really built here.

>reversing headshunt
Right, should have looked up the term and not assume anything. Didn't know the double sided cars operated back to back. Now they make that much more sense.


I meant that it was a deviation in that a city (in Texas, no less) was building a new streetcar line AND using rebuilt vintage cars for the service.

I don't know what thread to use for this, so might as well put it here:


Is this train blaring "Kimi Ga Yo" when it's entering into the street traffic? That's like American bald eagles crying level of nationalism.


Nope, these trains are Meitetsu (Nagoya Rail) Panorama Cars, playing the Meitetsu theme. The theme is the foundation of Zuigen’s “Meitetsu Rhapsody”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlWUzRjwIdw

In comparison, here is the “Kimi ga yo” – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kimi_ga_Yo_1930.ogg – which I personally consider among the world’s greatest national anthems.

I think now is a good time to remind everyone that the 1chan helpline can be texted 24/7 when issues arise here.

We recently had an issue with spam/porn being posted on the front page. Whoever posted it also managed to cause issues with our config preventing anyone else from posting or logging in. While it wasn't a big issue to fix, I was unaware of what had happened until needing to fix it.

If you see any issues on 1chan please report them by texting (512) 953-3619

>do you have an alternative that won't cost us shitloads

How does that "costing shitloads" even work? For the shits and giggles I tried to add +1 to the number and it claims it went through. Was it in reality silently dropped or is the 1chan bat phone now flashing euro signs and requesting extra compensation for receiving my 30 bytes worth of disco references and depreciation of your work?


For most operators, international SMS is not included in your plan. Since the EU decided that certain cross-border operations has to be treated as domestic, UK operators have basically decided to gouge the fuck out of everything else, so calls and texts to some non-EU states are ridiculously expensive.


Where you asking me to fix the catalog?


yeah, and sorry about that.

But wowzors, I fully expected that the +1 512 exchange would have dropped that message on the floor on grounds of your American plan not allowing the reception of overseas SMS. That's what my operator warned on their site and what I wanted to test. Because there's also that issue with the foreign SMS: even if you can send and are charged overseas fee there's no guarantee on delivery.


No worries! I figured it was you.

Yeah it came through just fine. I have family overseas and have no issue with sending SMS to and from them. Although for the sake of cost we use alternatives most of the time.

Amtrak not only endorses this sports rivalry, but even awards a trophy to whichever of the two teams wins the most times every time they face each other over the regular season.

Because there's far too much stupidity in this country, because efforts by Operation Lifesaver and the railroads themselves just aren't enough, the US Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have joined forces to shout into the abyss.



On one hand, I really want this to work and for society as a whole to just stay off the fucking tracks. An end to the era of every train crew member having witnessed a pedestrian strike would be amazing.

But on the other hand, if you lack self preservation to the point that you'll run out in front of trains or walk down the tracks, you kinda had it coming.
